Sustainability without compromise

Sustainability is a way of thinking that is written into a company's DNA. It determines how big strategic or small day-to-day decisions are made and how the wider impact is taken into account in each of your decisions and actions. The important question here is not so much as "what” the company does but "how”. It covers all areas of the entrepreneurship, from HR and financial management to marketing and product development.

In the case of sustainable development, the key question is how the company ensures that its impact is as positive as possible. This means minimizing the negative impact as well as increasing the positive contribution - in the community, in the work and natural environments.

By delivering parcels to more and more people every day, we need to be aware of our impact on urbanized communities and offer solutions that bring people a better quality of life. Since 2019, DPDgroup has come up with a number of smart urban logistics solutions that reduce pollution and noise in cities and offer e-shoppers a number of flexible and environmentally friendly delivery options.

We have already achieved carbon neutrality today by measuring our CO2 emissions, reducing them and offsetting the remaining emissions. We invest in environmental projects around the world that reduce CO2 and produce clean energy.

For DPD, sustainability is not just a buzzword or a temporary solution - it is part of our bloodstream and we are ready to drive long-lasting changes that will make a better and cleaner living environment for all of us.

We aim at being the most sustainable delivery company in Europe.

Supporting the youth and children of Rae municipality

There are many families in Rae municipality who are socially vulnerable and eagerly accept help. We are here to lend a helping hand and work closely with the social workers of Rae municipality.

Every year, we gather lists of children from socially vulnerable families who start school. We buy them school supplies so they would not have to worry about missing anything.

We also support low-income families during Christmas. The social workers of Rae municipality provide us with a list things that families are missing and we do our best to fulfill their wishes. Here, the wishes are fulfilled by both us as a company and our employees as individuals. Our neighboring companies and their employees also make a great contribution. Everyone who wants to help families has always been able to contribute.

Pumpkin transport to the Tallinn Zoo

Every year, DPD collects pumpkins together with the Tallinn Zoo. The joint pumpkin campaign of DPD and the Tallinn Zoo has now taken place eight times and each year there are more and more people who generously donate their autumn produce. For example, in the autumn of 2019, DPD transported 23 tons of pumpkins to the zoo and in addition to that, people also transported their produce to the zoo themselves.

In the course of the campaign, DPD will deliver pumpkins from pumpkin growers from all over Estonia free of charge, but those who wish can also bring their pumpkins to the zoo themselves.
